I have added the following lines to the inputs.conf on the universal forwarder. But those events are not getting forwarded to Splunk. Any idea as to what I've done wrong here?
[WinEventLog://Microsoft-Exchange-HighAvailability/Operational] disabled = 0 [WinEventLog://Microsoft-Exchange-ManagedAvailability/Monitoring] disabled = 0 [WinEventLog://MSExchange Management] disabled = 0 [WinEventLog://Microsoft-Exchange-MailboxDatabaseFailureItems/Operational] disabled = 0
All of the channels seem to be reasonable, so there is no reason why they shouldn't be read unless there is a permissions issue. Check the log files on the forwarder in %SPLUNK_HOME%\var\log\splunk - most notably splunkd.log (you can do this from the splunk instance by searching index=_internal source=*splunkd.log host=) for any errors in the WinEventLog modular input.
Could you please post your Outputs.conf as well? Does it have the right path and port to the receivers?
I have 3 conf files sets. Following are the outputs.conf files.
FYI data is getting to the server. As if in Application and System logs. But not the new non-standard logs I have configured.
